Become a mindfulflyer!
Offset CO2 with the app
Open “mindfulflyer” in our app under “My Challenge”.
Your flight-based CO2 emissions will be calculated automatically and recorded clearly.
Click “Offset flights”, and select how and which flights you wish to offset.
If you don't have enough award miles, you can combine money and miles with Cash & Miles.
You can offset a flight from Frankfurt am Main to New York in Economy Class with as few as 1,150 award miles.
Your offsetting options
You have two options for offsetting your CO2 emissions: promoting the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and reforestation.
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)
SAF is obtained from biomass. The aim is to use it to replace fossil-based jet fuel entirely in the future. Using SAF generates 80% fewer CO2 emissions than conventional kerosene.
You can fly more sustainably right away and invest in research into CO2-neutral fuels.
Alongside SAF, reforestation is one of the most effective methods of combating climate change. The aim of reforestation is twofold: to reduce CO2 and help to conserve the unparalleled biodiversity of the region concerned.
Your reward: digital badges
You will receive digital badges for your offsetting efforts which you can share on social media to motivate others to join in.
You will receive the Climate Supporter badge when you offset a flight for the first time.
You will be awarded our mindfulflyer badge when you have successfully offset all your flights in one year.
This feature is only available in the latest version of the Miles & More app. You may need to update your version of the app.
